Rembrandt's painting The Return of the Prodigal Son captures the climactic moment in Jesus' parable (Luke 15: 11-32). We feel the compassionate dimension of forgiveness in the father's gentle embrace of his wayward son. On the side, the elder son looks on, obviously displeased with this surprising display of unconditional love. Sometimes it is not easy to accept or tolerate forgiveness.
